Cranford perform well at the Ulster Cross Country Championships

Sunday last saw Cranford athletes compete at the Ulster Uneven Age Cross Country Championships in Finn Valley on what was a very wet and windy day which made for a very muddy course.

Ryan McMenamim started off the day in the u9 boys race where he came home in 7th position.

In the u11 girls race we had a big entry with Nazara McFadden having a great race coming home in 15th place closely followed by Eimear Breen in 20th, Clodagh Neely in 22nd, Aoibhinn McGinley in 34th with Teresa Mullen, Clodagh Neely, Ciara Donnelly, Blaithnaid Gallagher, Emma McCann and Orla Neely all running well.

The U11 boys team done very well with Max Roarty leading the boys home in 2nd position claiming a silver medal with Cian McMenamim in 7th, Conor Neely in 27th, Caolan Curran in 44th and Aidan McFadden in 45th which earned these boys a well deserved bronze team medal and who now all qualify for the National Championship in Waterford. Max and Cian were also part of the winning Donegal team.

Next up was the u13 girls race where Caitlin O’Hara and Sophie Curran both ran very well coming well up the field.

In the u13 boys race Oisin Kelly, running out of his age, came 3rd and claimed a bronze medal closely followed by Liam Donnelly, Allan Neely, Johnny Trearty and Oran McMenamim. Oisin also won a gold Donegal team medal and secured his place on the Donegal and Ulster teams at the Nationals.

Molly Trearty ran very well in the u15 girls race coming home in 16th position and with the Donegal team coming in 2nd place also secured her place on the Donegal team that will travel to Dungarvan for the National Championships in December with Hannah Logue also having a good strong run.

In the u15 boys race Eoin Logue and Eoghan Moore both ran very well finishing well up the field.

Next up for the u17 boys were Kevin Logue and Eoin Kelly with both boys running very well with Kevin finishing in 13th and Eoin in 25th place. Kevin was also part of the Donegal team which finished third and who will now also travel to Dungarvan in December.

The last race of the day was the Novice mens race where Christopher Murray had a good strong run finishing well up the field.

Congratulations to the athletes who have now qualified for the National Championships in Waterford in December.

Thanks to the coaches Eamon Giles, Joe Boyce, Ernie McElhinney, Rose Gavaghan and Bridie Trearty for all their support and to the parents who travelled with the athletes.

Next up for Cranford is the National Even Age Cross Country Championships in Santry on the 22nd November where we wish all our qualifying athletes the best of luck.
